Black Girls Rock founder DJ Beverly Bond is being honored by the United Way's Young Leaders Council for her work empowering teenage girls of color through the arts. The superstar DJ and former model started her foundation four years ago to counter the negative images of young women in the media.
Her second annual Black Girls Rock Awards in October honored the likes of Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige and Naomi Campbell, among others, for their own philanthropy and work in making Black girls, well, rock.
We love Bond for her legendary style and her ability to rock a party with soul and purpose. Kudos.
